Rated 3 out of 5Â by archaeoFL Just ok, but ok for the price
I got these in gray, with the single-repeat chevron in gray, blue, yellow, and pink, to possibly switch out for the standard knobs/pulls on a new bedside table. I haven't decided which I like better, and for the price, it doesn't make sense to return these (by mail, no store near me) in either case. I will say that the reason I didn't give them more stars is that the description made me think that someone actually made these by hand, despite seeing that they are imported. They have "made in China" stickers on them, so it looks like they are mass produced in China, not exactly what I thought I was buying based on the narrative description though, for the cost, I should have known better. In retrospect, I wish I'd ordered the yellow knobs for the shape and brighter pop of color.
Another thing to note is the texture on these - where you see white (at least for the gray style), the stoneware is exposed. The color is a raised, glossy texture, likely from the application of slip or another type of glaze. Not that big a deal, perhaps, but they aren't a smooth-all-over texture.
